FORT JESUS – The old Portuguese fortress is a somptuous decor for the exhibition of 47 enlargements of old postcards depicting how the city and its people were looking like about one century ago, when the old Swahili harbour turned into a major modern cosmopolitan town, becoming the outlet of the whole region, from the Ocean to the Kivu, because of its deep water harbour and of the railway.

The exhibition, organised in partnership with the National Museums of Kenya, and supported by the French Embassy in Nairobi, was opened on December 8th, by Ms Rabia Salim, representing the Minister of Tourism and Culture, Mombasa County Council. The Friends of Fort Jesus also assisted with the official opening. FR

It could be visited till the end of January, when it moved to the premises of the National Museum, in Malindi, and was there from mid-February till end of April, 2016. FR On a pu la visiter jusqu'à la fin janvier, date à laquelle elle a été réinstallée au Musée National de Malindi, de mi-février à fin avril 2016.
